Does anyone have experience with switching from full time to part time? A full-time job no longer suits me, and I'm afraid I won't be able to agree on a part-time job. I would also like to add that I am horrified when I notice tensions between... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Bass Pro Shops
From what I’ve read and what I hear the management is dreadful at the Macon location. I know a higher up HR figure came to the store and I wanted to know if anything had changed or been resolved? Did many people meet with HR while they were there? If... — read more
I work part time and for the past 2 months I’ve been forced to work 35-39 hours a week. Managers never asked or made any attempt to work with me on scheduling before posting these hours. They won’t make any of us full time but are gladly taking... — read more
Love how all the posts about people getting away with stuff at macon bass pro keeps getting deleted lol
I agree with most of what I've read here, but....it appears to me that an unusually large amount of the posts are being written by the same person. How many people do you know that consistently spell potentially troublesome words with only the first... — read more
Seems you have to kiss b––t to get anywhere in Macon bass pro. They let the hard workers go and yet the ones that brown nose can get away with whatever they want... like being allowed to not have to wear a mask and wear short shorts. Or be lazy and... — read more
Treat people like c––p and you lose hard working people. I corporate doesn’t do anything with all the emails that they’ve received so I guess they are waiting on someone to give them what they deserve. It’s coming. They will treat the wrong person... — read more
I was laid off a few months before the pandemic but by that time the situation at our store was so bad that I welcomed it. I was thinking of applying again (I recently lost my job again due to the pandemic - yes, my life s—s) but not if the... — read more
This happened a few weeks after I started and i wasn’t really that surprised, cause in fact I kinda expected it to happen. So I was just standing at my register helping customers check out, then this guy just walks up and says “hey n—r” and at... — read more
So there is a lot on this about the Macon location which is only surprising simply because a lot more people were upset than I thought. People being upset is very justified because ever since the new HR and Manager got there. Simply put if you don't... — read more
Is it just me or are others tired of the double talk from Bass Pro? Johnny waves the American flag yet so much product branded as Bass Pro is NOT made in U S A, rather made in China!!! Johnny preaches family yet we all have to work on Easter... — read more
I have watched the culture at my store go from Bass Pro to Walmart to below K-Mart? Store managers have gone from a sniveling weasel all the way to a genuine con man. Common thread with all managers is....get that bonus by any means possible. ... — read more
So, how many took a job at Bass thinking it would only be temporary? You know, until something “better” comes along? Then years later you’re still here. I am one of those people. I thought eventually I’d find a better opportunity, but I never did -... — read more
There has been talks between the employees at the Macon store of an employee walk out on March 20th at 1pm. The manager is unbearable. That store has become a miserable place to work. Corporate has been told by numerous employees but nothing has... — read more
The Macon location has had a lot of valuable employees to resign due to the management and HR. There’s going to be a day real soon someone is going to file discrimination on them. Everyone there knows the reasons. I guess they will do something at... — read more
Anyone has a manager that make you want to call in sick on the daily? I have one who causes everyone to cringe. I’m so sick of being yelled at. If I make mistakes I own up to it like an adult. I don’t need someone riding my @$$ to the point where I... — read more
Seems like management at the Destin location have been let go. Any ideas why?
I just had my review and nothing about a bonus was mentioned. Has anyone else heard anything?
it’s a shame how some employees have to struggle to make sure they can make it to work, she has no clue because rules doesn’t apply. Again misses a day and is unaccounted for again. She must be special.
Curious how employees at other stores are feeling about it.
There is none. And the thieves know it.
It is funny I have posted about this 2 times and somehow it keeps being taken off, does Corp. Not want people to know how employees in macon are treated? Or the fact you have some that can get away with c-ap like being out more then they work. Or the... — read more
Looking for any information on bonuses to be issued in 2021. Thoughts on whether management will receive bonuses and if so, ballpark percentage? How are bonuses calculated? Last year was a tough year for everyone - curious if people will be... — read more
People simply lack empathy. Many of those we greet surely themselves suffer the whims of their superiors and the stress of uncertainty due to dismissals, but they come here and pass on their frustrations to us without any compassion. So we are... — read more
Is New Year’s Day still a paid holiday? It’s posted in our break room that it is, but my managers have told me that it is not. Just genuinely curious if this has changed. As a full time employee, I don’t mind the extra pay, but I felt like last year... — read more
Schedules just went up and it looks like my stores hours are getting cut after Christmas. Even department heads are getting lowered to 28-32 hours. Thought we would have a little while long before that would happen. Anyone else experiencing this?
Johnny is buying Sportsman’s Warehouse now, glad we laid people off and cut pay to make it happen.
Is anyone seeing an uptick in sales during the Christmas season? Just 4 days left and I have to say I love having last minute shoppers! Chaching! We’re still a little understaffed but my coworkers and I have been catching the Christmas spirit and for... — read more
Only sticking it out working here for the healthcare. What other places are better to work at that have decent healthcare?
I know a lot of people are unhappy at Bass. I read all the complaints here and they are valid. You’re unhappy with the way things are run, with management, and so forth. You can try to find another job with a competitor, but in reality you’ll find... — read more
So I recently told my manager something in confidence and in return he told everyone what we spoke about. I had assumed the discussion would be kept confidential and now I feel betrayed that he has shared this with others. The only reason I spoke to... — read more
I have to wonder if Johnny has any idea how his employees really feel about these two boys that have taken over the macon Ga store. They treat there employees like c-ap talk to them like c-ap, and think we are to take it, Johnny makes millions and he... — read more
I’ve got some friends who work at other retail shops and they all said it’s been pretty bad. I think we did really well at my location. We seemed to be a little understaffed but it was nothing we couldn’t handle. Our customer counts were a little low... — read more
I am a fairly new employee. I gave myself a year with the company to see if it would be a good fit. Well, my anniversary date is just around the corner and I have to admit I like this place. My manager is not as bad as some I’ve heard about and while... — read more
I know many out there will not appreciate what I’m about to say but here goes. There are hundreds of employees who remain with Bass not because we love it or even like it here - but because it’s the way to pay the bills. I remember the difficulty I... — read more
Anyone feel their store is not prepared to handle the onslaught of customers when Black Friday sales open? In the past we have always tried to prepare for it - but we always fall short. We either don’t have enough employees on shift - or we run out... — read more
Raises to riffs..2021 lay offs? What is the word out there? I hear lots of circulation that leads will have more responsibility and become key carriers...cutting more salary managers out.
Sad when you work in a bass pro store that has an employee postive Gor rhis but They will not let you know who, so how the HELL do you know if you have been around this merson
I saw the company is doing seasonal hires. Anyone know if an employee who was laid off (not fired) can apply for those positions? I am also curious if anyone who was part of the layoffs back in the middle of the year has tried to apply. I’m just... — read more
